    It seems my two choices would be Dreams and RIU from according to most of the brides here. By the way your pics were beautiful!

      I viewed a thread regarding average cost for guests and I can't seem to find it. Do you know where it is?

        also you want to consider that generally "slow season" in mexico is from may- september and you can often get lower rates at that time.
        we chose dreams because it is all inclusive and a little smaller than RIU. also at the time when i started plannig i could never get RIU to email me back so it made setting a date impossible- so i chose Dreams. Dreams is about 250 rooms and a little more quaint. it was exactly what i was looking for. it is about a 20 min car ride into town though- so if you are looking for something close to town RIU is much closer. PM me if you have specific questions about costs and stuff! i am happy to help you.

          Hi Tammy,
          Well I wouldn't mind being closer to Cabo San Lucas so a hotel there would be nice. Would you mind checking RIU out for me? My FI likes the summer months but it doesn't seem that the weather is the best then. Why did you chose Dreams over RIU? Some brides have said that RIU is more of a party scene. Maybe that would be best for us? Either way could you check out RIU and Dreams please?

              Congratulations! It's exciting and overwhelming. I am so happy that I found this website. Everyone has been so nice and so generous with their advice. Are you getting married in Cabo? Have you been there before? Any ideas yet? I don't feel its real yet. I think once I set the date then that's when it will be official. I look forward to talking with you.
              Good luck,

                  I have lived here for seven years so I can tell you about July and other preferred months for weddings. First off it is HOT, 95+ per day. It is rare to get rain in July. It will get cloudy (big and beautiful) over the mountains to the west and rain there but rarely 'in town'. Preferred months for climate would be Nov thru April.

                    How about June - what is the weather like then? I'm not very good in the heat so that is my biggest worry.
